Praise

Praise for Nickel Bay Nick:

“Told with wry humor, this fast-paced novel will appeal to fans of Louis Sachar’s Holes (Farrar, 1998) and Gary D. Schmidt’s Okay for Now (Clarion, 2011). In the best tradition of Christmas stories, it’s a bit of a tearjerker as Sam discovers just why Mr. Wells cares so much about him and learns to forgive his own parents. This is a Christmas book that can be enjoyed year-round.”
School Library Journal

“Sam’s a great, well-realized kid, and readers will root for him every step of the way… Crime does pay off—to the benefit of others—in this enjoyable novel.”
Kirkus Reviews
